[fedora-virt] does "qemu-launcher" really need "qemu" as a dependency?

  for the sake of anal-retentive and pedantic testing, i decided to
remove a random qemu system emulation package (in this case,
qemu-system-arm) with:

  # yum remove qemu-system-arm

and the result was to remove qemu-launcher as well.  was that really
necessary?  does qemu-launcher really need the entire "qemu" meta
package as a dependency?
